2018: a review

I think the best way to sum up 2018 for Panzerwrecks is “behind schedule”. We’d planned to publish more that we actually achieved for a start. Panzerwrecks 22: Desert made it out of the computer and into your hands. The book had been a work in progress of mine for many years, and was surprisingly well received given that there were no Tigers, Panthers or any other ‘wow’ Panzers. There will be another desert edition, but not for a couple of years.

Vyacheslav Kozitsyn’s first book; Sturmgeschütz III & Sturmhaubitze 42 was delayed by a Russian museum dragging their heels with permissions and high-resolution scans. Frustratingly, this set the project back by some months, and everything else moved back accordingly.

In Focus 2: Panzers in Berlin underwent a dramatic change, from 112-page softcover book to a 350-page hardcover tour-de-force tome about German fighting vehicles in the Berlin Campaign, now entitled Panzers in Berlin 1945. The team (Robert, Mario and I) are doing our best to get it finished and out for the spring. Keep an eye on the site for updates. This book has more rare tanks than you can shake a track-link at. More walkarounds, more information on those last ditch units and unique insights into the state of German armoured forces at this final point of the war. I’m tempted to guarantee that you will love it if you love Panzers, but I won’t …

So, to 2019. What can you expect? Well, to start there’s Panzers in Berlin. then, for fans of super crisp photography and unseen images will be the third instalment of Darren Neely’s Forgotten Archives series. Panzerwrecks 23 is almost complete and will follow nearer the end of the year. And that’s just the stuff I can tell you about!

On behalf of myself and the elves here at Panzerwrecks Towers, I’d like to wish you a safe and happy Christmas.
